Objectives: The aim of the present study was to examine validity, reliability and factor structure analysis of the revised version of the Screen for Child Anxiety Related Emotional Disorders-71 (SCARED-71). Method: After providing the Persian version of the target scale using translation and back translation, the approved version of the SCARED-71 as well as School Anxiety Inventory (SAI) and Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ) were administered to 237 students (83 males, 154 females) of Isfahan city selected through stratified-cluster sampling. Results: Cronbach’s alpha and test-retest reliability coefficient were 0.93 and 0.83, respectively. The range of Cronbach’s alpha and retest reliability for the subscales were  0.57 to 0.84 and 0.61 to 0.82, respectively. Female probands reported higher anxiety scores in all subscales. Convergent and divergent validity of the SCARED-71 in correlation of the CERQ subscale were confirmed. Explanatory factor analysis revealed seven factors accounted for 43% of the total variance. This structure was confirmed through confirmatory factor analysis. Conclusion: The revised version of the SCARED-71 has satisfactory validity and reliability.
